CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A former pharmacist has pleaded guilty in federal court in New Hampshire to obtaining controlled substances under false pretenses.

Court documents say 62-year-old Frank Styles Jr., of Exeter, altered about 77 records relating to prescriptions he filled as a pharmacist in Stratham in order to obtain controlled substances. He diverted about 564 pills for his own use.

He’s scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 30.
